F@B Books and Story Tree Activities


Our lovely parent group, Friends at Broughton (F@B) recently organised a fund raising activity in school.

Last Friday 30th April, our children were encouraged to come to school wearing a hat, or a headpiece with decoration based on a favourite book or character. There were some lovely creations on show!

Also, the children were invited to create and design their own hand made books and bookmarks. The books were judged and prizes were awarded to our finalists and overall winner. The bookmarks made will be used by our P1 pupils in their classrooms!

Here are the finalists in our handmade book competition! These entries all earned a book as a prize!


Here is our overall winner, who received a £10 book voucher! Amelie from P4b, who made this lovely story and activity book! Well done Amelie!

Here are some of our fantastic bookmark designs!


Well done to everyone who made the effort to design one of these lovely creations! Everyone who did has earned house points, but special congratulations go to our prize winners!

Another activity as part of this event is the Story Tree. F@B and Parent Council members set up a Story Tree in St Marks Park on Friday 30 April.  Pink blossom was added by some of the younger children and wild flowers by some of the parents.  At around 2 pm, 2 groups of around 23 children from Broughton After School Club had fun pointing out the features of the Story Tree.  It was enjoyed by others over the weekend. Here are some pictures!
